I bought a shift knob adaptor second hand to install a Hurst t-handle. I am having real difficult time getting the adaptor aligned with the hole in the R stem and have the shifter work properly (go into Park). I have managed to align it a couple times at the two different heights available and put the screw in but then it would not depress to go in Park.

There is only 3 parts to the adaptor right? Two aluminum cylinders and a spring? Is there another manufacture of adaptors? Did get one that doesn't fit the R?

Ideas?

If it is one of mine, it sounds like you are not installing it correctly. There is no need to align the setscrew with the factory R hole, just the opposite actually. The setscrew should be against a solid section of the OEM shaft.

Some pictures of what you have may help identify the problem.
